A Brief History…

Tattumi was created in the spring/summer of 2015. Originally from one man’s burning desire to celebrate (demonstrate significant over enthusiasm) for the birth of a good friend’s child by creating a temporary tattoo of that child’s face with the words “Top Lad“* written underneath.  *”#thuglife” was also strong contender.

The subsequent work and creative process was so much fun and the results hilarious that it set off a series of further ideas that had to be tried. The opportunities seemed so endless, that it begged the obvious question, “why doesn’t everyone have these – all the time?”.. It turns out that they do, and they’re called real tattoos, but the problem with those is once the laughter has died down you’re stuck with them. This set off a series of intense tattoo R&D that frequently left us looking like idiots down at the local pool, but left us with a quality product that looks great and lasts between 3-7 days. Then was a case of developing a site to let design your dream tattoos.

You can use our site to create a custom design from scratch, by importing any design of your choosing, pictures from Facebook and Instagram, or by importing any of the designs from our shop into our customisation tool. Simply choose a size and click to buy! Can’t wait to see what you come up with…
